Huddersfield Town fell to a 2-1 defeat last night in the Championship against Birmingham City.
Gary Gardner gave the Blues a first-half lead, but Isaac Mbenza struck a fine free-kick to equalise on 85 minutes. However, Lukas Jutkiewicz struck late to secure Birmingham the points at St Andrew’s.
Carlos Corberan’s side have now suffered back-to-back defeats in the Championship, with growing frustration over on social media.
Huddersfield Town quiz: Are these 12 facts about the Terriers’ history genuine or not?
One man shouldering the bulk of that frustration is Juninho Bacuna.
The midfielder scored the winner against Derby County little over a week ago, but he was under-par against Preston North End and then poor again against Birmingham last night.
Corberan axed the midfielder at half-time, with fans taking to Twitter to deliver their verdict of Bacuna.
As the following selection of tweets show, Bacuna’s inconsistency is becoming a major frustration for Town fans…
too many players in the squad simply not good enough. Bacuna thinks he's Messi, Diakhaby is just not for us, and Schindler is a shadow of his former self. Don't even get me started on Hamer's pitiful evasion of their second goal. Big problems for Carlos. #htafc

Poor performance tonight, most likely a combination of tired legs and Birmingham not leaving any gaps.
In a way it's good that we played so poorly and still nearly came away with a point.
Pleased for Mbenza getting his goal but concerned about Diakhaby and Bacuna.#HTAFC

Once again Bacuna absolutely woeful tonight, trying stupid passes, skill & only runs when he can be bothered. Needs dropping next game, if club is actually telling truth about wanting to promote youth then get Jackson / Austerfield in they can’t be any worse #htafc

Thought Diakhaby was really poor. Disappointed we are still having to watch him. Pritchard likewise. Bacuna, not sure why he keeps starting games. Bit of a liability imo #htafc

Bacuna is our Balotelli – talented but his attitude will allow it to waste away. If Wagner, Cowley and Corberan can’t get a tune from him, no one can #htafc

If Bacuna is the answer, what is the question? #htafc
